Prophet Nicholas Osei famed as Prophet Kumchacha has tagged pastors who sell anointing oil and holy water as criminals who must be jailed for extortion.
The General overseer of the Heavens Gate Ministries also included men of God who force their congregation to pay mandatory offertory in church to the criminal tag.
Prophet Kumchacha said in an interview that it was not written on any page of the bible (a Christian book that guides their life) that a Christian must pay money to anyone before they are allowed to receive the blessings of God.
He also added that the house of God (a church) is an open place available for everyone to fellowship and he finds it as an act of extortion for a pastor to demand monies before allowing people in church.
“Someone may be going through something, depressed, feeling suicidal, sickness and may have heard about a pastor or prophet for encouragement but he may not come because he needs to pay Ghs200 or GHs500 as consultation fee,” he said.
“Such pastors are criminals. Offering money must be a voluntary act from the heart. The Bible says let them give according to what they have and want to give. Someone may want to give GHs2,000 or 200 as an offering as long as they want to,” he stated.
Prophet Kumchacha concluded that such pastors must be arrested and made to face the law.
